ONE OF ' OLD ISAIAH'S THOUGHTS.
How beautiful upon the mountain are tba feet
of hlra that brlnfeth good tidings, that publleheth
,' peace: that brlngeth food tidings of good, that
publiaheth aalvatlon. laalah, 111, 7.
Iiaiab had recovered from bii delusion to a
possible reformation of Iarael under Chaldean op
pression. The final defeat of Sennacherib by dis
ease at Pelusium, and the salvation of Jerusalem
through this providential intervention, with the re
solve of Hezekiah to turn again to the God of his
fathers, were the topics of the day at Jerusalem, 'and
the space given these events in Kings, Chronicles,
Isaiah and Jeremiah, indicate their importance to the
people. But Isaiah had a greater message.
His good tidings did not deal with the things that
had passed, but with things to come. Israel was de
pressed, for the glory that was won by David and
magnified by Solomon was dwindling away surely to
the Second Captivity Isaiah brought to them the
promise of the Messiah, the blossom that was to bloom
on the root of Jesse; he literally published salvation,
and the hope of the Jews revived, in expectancy of a
deliverance to come, even as did the epidemic of
enteric fever overtake the host that had threatened
to annihilate Jerusalem, once the leader of that host
was sure the king of Egypt had abandoned his march
on learning of what had happened to the king of Tyre.
Isaiah's message has been repeated many times
since, and always the feet of him that bringeth good
pews are beautiful upon the mountains. The publi
cation of peace still is carried on; not the peace as
the world knows it, the absence of armed conflict or
contentious wrangling and disputations, but that
peace which passeth understanding, the peace of God.
Messengers go abroad throughoVii all the world; the
mandate of the Majterto bis apostles is faithfully ob
served, now as it was tnen, and no corner of the earth
is so remote or inacessible, but the good tidings have
been carried there.
What is th,ft;harvest? Who can say? In America,
where church and state are separate, where religion,
is a matter of conscience and not of compulsion,
church membership is increasing faster than the popu
lation. Perhaps this is true all over the world.
Isaiah's message was to the Jew alone; his successors
have taken it to all men: Peace and salvation are
promised those who' will avail themselves of the
offer; if these do not prevail everywhere, the blame
- rests not on the messenger whose feet are beautiful
on the mountains; but on a perverse and willful peo
ple who decline to accept or understand his message.
OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL.
Ever and ever "class conscious" orators stentori
ously deplore the facf that there is no longer a chance
to rise in this country. Such fail to look at what is
going on about them. In the president's chair sits a
man who rose from an humble position. He built
himself up by patient industry. All around us are
similar examples. In Omaha most of the big jobs
are held by men who started as poor boys. Bank
heads, railroad men, corporation managers, in all
walks of life are examples of what may be done when
determined effort is put forth. ..
One of the latest of these illustrations of the cer
tain rewad that awaits on industry and intelligent
ffnrt ia th" case of Jav D. Risinc who has lust been
made- a vice president of the Park National bank in
New York. He is a native Nebraskan, a poor boy,
and not a great many years ago he was a section
hand on the Northwestern railroad. No magic lifted
him' to his present 'position. He won his way because
he had some, talent and much courage. . He may not
have dallied as long as others have with the pleasures
by the way;' the chances are he did not drive an auto
mobile until he could afford to, and he undoubtedly
gave over many other things. On the other hand,
he is now in a position to indulge himself to some
extent in the luxuries of life, and probably within
reason he will.
Envious idlers who have failed in life, or are in a
fair way to fail, will carp at this man, and he will be
denounced by those whose chiefest occupation is to
give away other people's money, and whose highest
ambition isto enjoy the fruit of another's toil. Yet
his success is in the reach of any young man who will
work as he worked, adding brains to brawn. Oppor
tunity is ever present for those who have the knowl
edge and pluck to seize it.
LETTERS THAT NEVER COME.
There are pleasures in life seemingly ao small ai
not to be taken into account and ytt whose absence
would be devastating. Such an one is receiving a
letter. The cold figures show that an average of two
letters a week for each person in America passed
through the poitoffice. In reality, of course, many
received much more mail than that, and by the same
token many got nothing at all.
Doubtless those who have no correspondents may
eventually come never to miss them. But to have
known the joy of daily calls from the postman and
then to watch him for a whole week or month pan
by without halting ia sheer misery.
Sons and daughter! leave the old neat, and in
their zest of life or immersion in affairs close by,
forget to write the old folks at home. Sisters and
brothers scatter from one end of the country to the
other and may never write each other for months or
years at a time. Every now and then one reads of
some one advertising for the whereabouts of a
relative. Reunions) of those who had not seen or
heard of each other for a quarter of a century are
not exceptional. One may have written to the other
many times witnout receiving -a reply, wnat
tragedies are born of letters that lie unanswered.
Pathos passes daily beneath the eyes of the mail
carrier. That lonely woman who watches from be
hind the parlor curtains at mail time how eagerly
she rushes to the door aa the postman knocks. And
how downcast she is to find nothing more than a
paper" or a bill. What pleasure it would be if for
once he could deliver to everyone the letter that Is
How different is the sparkle in the eye of the girl
who races to the walk to snatch her sweetheart's note
from governmental hands. Thus do innumerable ro
mances bud along his way. He even comes to joke
with these young things. And if by chance the mis
sives cease to come he goes silently by, as if he
shared the guilt of faithlessness.

MAN'S NEW INTEREST IN MAN.
Samuel Gompers is quoted as saying: "I am con
vinced that never in the history of organized labor
and capital has there been such an effort on both
sides to view things from a really human standpoint"
His faith is well founded,' but he may extend his re
marks to include practically the whole human race.
Never before has man taken such an interest in man
as is now exhibited. The major expression, to be sure,
has to do with the abolition of war, for that appeals
to the imagination a little more potently because of
the magnificent terror of the recent demonstration
of war's possibilities. Yet the observer may note in
many other directions the manifestations of the al
truistic impulse. Each year for many years past has
seen the answer to the question of Cain, "Am I my
brother's keeper?" growing in its emphatic affirma
tive. Man has aided man and nation has helped na
tion; each day has borne its glorious record of hu
manity's endeavor to bring all men together into one
household and brotherhood. We yet have consider
able distance to travel, but man's interest in man is
going ahead faster and faster and faster, and selfish
ness is less and less a controlling motive in the public
or private doing of the individual. Those who doubt
or despair either have not looked close enough, or
their examination has been too limited, for the world
is getting better.
NOT TO BE SAVED BY MACHINERY.
The power of the human will is immeasurable,
and if every mind would accept the idea of "no more
war," the matter could be considered near settlement.
Link with this idea the vast spiritual forces that find
so little excercise in modern life, and no set of cir
cumstances could overcome the pacific determination
of the people. Convince men, first, that war does
not pay, and that it is morally wrong, and what re
Sometimes it is cold, calculating intelligence that
brings nations into armed conflict. Sometimes it
is more nearly an emotfonal frenzy. Often the two
are mixed. Unite these human characteristics against
international outbreaks as they have been united in
favor of them, and the object of world peace would
seem to be assured.
Lloyd George, speaking to a British religious
conference, said that churches must unite to make
war impossible. So they should, joining with every
other element in' removing the causes of war. The
test of sincerity , must be met in this case, not by
sentimental professions, but by the union of mind'
and soul in a crusade to eliminate those mistaken
or wrongful actions of men and nations that impose
the necessity for depending upon force for justice.
The means advertised by the British prime min
ister is the League of Nations. This very stand will
lead to doubt of his sincerity, for the covenant that he
praises so highly not only has done nothing to restrain
the warlike moves of its signatories, but is full of
the seeds of war. What rests with the mind and
soul of man to decide can not be left to any piece
of machinery such as the League of Nations to perform.

We have to learn the leaaon that
human progress depends upon co

None are sufficient unto themselves,
as this recent war has demonstrated,
for today the victors suffer equally
with the vanquished, while . even
neutrals are affected.
But International war la, after
all, the reault of evil war, for that
ia what Industrial strife Is. although
It does not go by that name. All
members of one country are .depend

place of co-operating for tha com

nations. That this la not far fetched
Is aeen In the history of all modern
nations, and especially in tnai oi
Great Britain, and now of our coun
try, which is following; In the foot

of wealth by Encland in other coun
tries hne been the prolific cause of
nreat Britain's wars, and now we
are having the same experience as
witness our imperialistic policy
which has developed of late years.
We cannot separate domestic and
foreign policy. A domestic policy
that permits of exploitation among
ourselves leads to industrial strife,
which is a form of warfare, and one
that often leads to actual civil war
and revolution, but always leads to
war with other countries sooner or
later, for the reason tnai a bjk"
of exploitation among ourselves in
evitablv produces the necessity for
the control of world markets for our
surplus products, ana inn
produces international war.
The way to end war is to first or
all abolish all necessity for it within
our own country by so ordering our
economic relations that peace and
good will prevails--instead of .strife
and hate among ourselves. The
forces in our midst making for this
desirable state of affairs are the or
ganizations of workers, such as na
tional and international labor union
and farmers' co-operative associa
tions, all of which are substituting
the principles of brotherhood and
internationalism in place of individ
ualism ind nationalism, as exempli
fied In our selfish and narrow com
mercialism, which always results in
war both at home and abroad.

A Good Ticket.
From. tha Tekamah (Nab.) Herald.
There should be no kick on the
republican nominees on the state
ticket, even if they were made by
the primary method. We have no
recollection of a better ticket ever
being nominated by the old state
convention plan. There are sure to
be some spots, no matter how the
candidates are selected. This year
produced a better and larger field
of aspirants for the several offices
than usual. It was a clean, fair
campaign, which promises to give
the victors the united support, of
their opponents afthe fall election.
As we have said before, no one
should enter a political race if he
cannot take defeat with a smile.
Take the office of United States sen
ator. It had six candidates on the
republican .ticket. Five of them
were doomed. That is Inevitable in
the game of politics.

a man that h) a car and drive It

Klrat. he gets Into an armor-clad box
on wheel, all cushioned up Ilk a

and If aom on ahnuld take hia car

It takes the whole police force to find

we think we ar o wise.
Now. I'm for that man that dared

several times a day, so I'm a "jay,"
and glad of It Now. my office hap

Across the Way Is a very nice little
cigar etore that sells pretty gooa
smokes and cool drinks. I patronize
It several times a. day.. To get to
this store, according to the city ordi
nances, I must walk half a block to
croaa a R0-foot crossing and walk
back on the other side half a block.
That Is a good block. To come back.
I luat hftv to reverse it. 'J nut is
two blocks ' I have to walk. Takes
trie aeveral minute to do my errand.
If I walk like a "lay." right across
the street. I walk 60 feet, and 10 feet
back. Who Is the fool, the city ordi
nance or me? If I can get throush
my lob four times as quick as the
citv allows me. I say the city is not
only a fool, but a thief, to rob me
of my share of life. '
Vow. another Instance: I amo live
Just in the middle of a block. I have
a dear friend across the street that I
often walk across to visit and have
. well, at least a smoke. Couldn't
do less to be friendly. Now, I m sup
posed, according to the city ord
nance to WSIK a OIOCB im:rc buu

office. Now, as the Intersections sre
paved by the city, i m anowea iu
walk on them, but Just outside or

hriek navlnar which cost me 600
irood cold n1 links. I'm allowed to
use that which the city gives us, but
I'm not allowed to walk on my $600
worth of paving. That's good horse
sense, isn't it? I'm sure these car
drivers ought to remember me when
I'm dead, and say how charitable I
was. especially when they think what
nice rugs 1600 would nave given me
to slide mv tired feet across.
It's my idea the police are here to
render me assistance when l require

this unasked-for help when I don't
want it. Why should I pay taxes to

J. HERMANUS LAWRENCE.
"SOMETHING JUST AS GOOD."
The queen of France advised the hungry mob to
eat cake if it could not get bread. While substitution
such as that was impossible, yet the principle back
of it is one universally i followed. A certain few
things are necessary to life, but for the most part
there are others that serve instead.
Very often the act of substitution consists in ob
taining the same article by some other than the cus
tomary methodv Thus, a few years back, when the
prices of women's ready made clothes were high, a
large demand developed for sewing machines, on
which women made their own garments. Today, if
the cost of baker's bread were popularly considered
too high, families would purchase flour and bake their
own loaves, or resort to cornmeal. Unquestionably
the high cost of meat has encouraged vegetarianism.
With railroad rates high, travel by motor car and
shipment by truck comes into more general practice.
When coal is short, factories install oil burners in
their furnaces and the development of water power
ia encouraged. .The height of labor costs in America
surely has had something to do with the invention
of labor saving machinery.
And to it goes. Events recently past demon

THIS HUMAN SCENE.
In a larger sense it may be true that the interests
of all people are one and the same, but the world has
never been run on any such principle. From the
standpoint of actuality it is to be questioned whether
the interests of any single class are as unified as the
world is inclined to regard them.
The group classified as capitalists, for instance.
Clearly there is one section of this that is mainly in
terested in obtaining high interest rates on its loans.
The manufacturers, on the other hand, desire money
at low rates in order to carry on their business. The
owners of the railroads and other public utilities
favor increased charges for their service while those
capitalists who patronize these utilities seek to lower
the costs. The landlords desire higher rents and
better prices for land, while the productive industries
and the mercantile interests are best pleased with
low one. Those whose main costs are for labor
worship low wages, while those with something to
sell profit best in periods when wages are high.
Out of this diversity of interest a system of
checks and balances has grown up that functions si
lently, but on the whole effectively. The world, after
all, is not organized on the plan of a melodrama. If
there are few heroes, there are few villains, also, and
there is no sign of a plot o'rily a mixed up, confused
and rather automatic interplay of motives and actions.
TJie next actorine to get front page publicity will
have td do some really startling thing. . .

From the Christian ""nce Monitor.
"There are no rich and there are
no poor in Australia," said e woman
from that commonwealth who has
brought to America one of the most
desirable things in the world of art
a voice that touches the heart
strings. "Of course, since the war
becan. some persons acquired an
unusual amount of wealth. We have
also aggregations of capital large
enough to carry on what you call
big business. But the fact remains
that in Australia wealth is distrib
ute more uniformly than in any
larera country in the world. We
Australians are very proud of that
fact -and we hope to perju? tuate the
The extent to whidh there are no
poor in the commonweaitn or aus
frniia even if there are sundry in
dividuals who may fairly be called
rich, as riches go in any country
except the United States is shown
conclusively by special correaponu
ence to this newspaper from Mel
hnnrne. That contribution shows
that out of a noDulation of 6,500, 000
2.442.284 have open accounts in
Australian savines banks: that dur
Ing last March savings totaling 3,
1 SO. 000 were deposited In these
banks, itt addition to the invest
ments made during that period ac
cessions to the large aggregations of
capital needed for the development
of big business.
It is shown that, not working peo
n1 alone, but many women and chil
dren, have accounts In the savings
banks. A little less than half the
men, women and children in the
commonwealth are bank depositors.
That is a showing of which every
Australian has reason to be proud.
With a country larger in area,
though by no means in cultivable
territory, than the.- United States,
Australia has enormous possibilities
of development by means of recla
mation. Immigration Into the com
monwealth from England is now
being stimulated by the British gov
ernment under the pressure of un
employment. Australia has made a splendid be-ctnrnns-
a.s a. country In which the
Australian singer's boast that "there
are no rich and no voor" is ai leasi
partly Justified by facts and figur.es.
A great civilization is being worked
out in there, with Its sister common
wealth, New Zealand. The upbuild
ing of this civilisation challenges the
attention of the world as one of the
most significant and interesting ex
periments in history.
How Do They Do It?
Front the Nation.
The most significant fact In the
failure of Allan A. Ryan for
$18,000,000 is the size of the loans
granted to him by banks and trust
companies. Known for years as one
of the boldest speculators in Wall
street, he was .finally forced out Of
the stock exchange. Yet the Guar
anty Trust company loaned him
$4 000.000, the Chase National bank
gave him 13,456,429, and the Me
chanics and Metals National bank
$1,402,963 to gamble with. Of
course these Joans were based on
collateral, but in the case of the i
$3,456,429 loan the value of the col
lateral is reported to have shrunk to
$667,766. Now every banker, being
human. Is liable to err in Accepting
collateral; ' but the salient fact re
mains that Mr. Ryan was known as
a most daring plunger. Why should
reputable Institutions give any sup
port V such a man? Some time
ago, when the farmers were unable
to get the loans they needed, the
charge was openly made, by John
Skelton Williams if we recall aright,
that the federal reserve system was
lending its funds to banks in New
Tork, which were in turn lending
